I belong to a yahoo group and the latest tutorial was the Bernie Berlin gesso and magazine image tecnique.
You take an image from magazine but I believe you can use all sorts of images from other places,adhere the image to card stock (I used pva) Gel medium was the desired stuff to use but i had none!.....wait to dry,then using white gesso(I used weak white emulsion) paint over image in a criss cross fashion and let dry. Once dry use perm marker/pen pencil to sketch over lines and add on what else you would like add to your artwork............You can then use pastels-paints-pencils-chalks to colour your new image and your imagination can go wild!
Here's my first two attempts
Well folks for the past two nights I have been to my craft table and just stood there looking at the stuff on table~~~~~I think I have crafters block, I mean I want to be creative but just don't know what!
I moved my encaustic art box into the lounge and it's sat there on coffee table just waiting and it's still waiting for me to do something with it.
I did my garden this afternoon and managed to take some pics of some beautiful flowers, with the intentions of using them as inspiration for some encaustic art work.
